Proposal for Future Mobility Policy Development based on Mobility Equality

As the future mobility industry, which combines technologies such as artificial intelligence, telecommunications, and big data, has proliferated in recent years, the government is actively responding to the enactment of relevant laws and policy development. Mobility is concerned with not only a technical or engineering problem but also takes on the social and structural problems in which relations and inequalities are prevalent. Humanities and sociological considerations must be reflected in establishing mobility-related policies. The main contents of the recently announced policies are biased towards technological and industrial development, and welfare policies for the strata placed in blind spots for technological benefits are marginalised. Compared to the speed of technological development, the response to derive social consensus on ethics and norms is insufficient. As a result, the following suggestions are made to develop an equitable mobility policy: the amalgamation of mobility technology development and welfare to develop a fair mobility policy, the enactment of ethical guidelines, the establishment of the organisation of an ethics committee, the preferential use for public benefit purposes, and labour policy due to changes in the industrial structure. Finally, it is necessary to ensure the participation of each level from the initial stage of policy making.
